Hi john113,


Thanks for posting.


You would need to have a data plan in place to send an MMS.


I've included a link here for you to our internet and MMS help page. You will need to follow the steps through selecting your handset. The settings will then be sent to you via text.


Once you have done this you may need to send a picture message to your own number to fully activate MMS on the handset.


Hope this helps.


Let me know how it goes
